Plan Description

enduranceworks krista schultz ironmanenduranceworks training plansCommit. Train. Perspire. Overcome. Achieve.
When you cross the finish line of an IRONMAN 70.3® triathlon, you've accomplished something very special.

Designed for NOVICE to INTERMEDIATE age group triathletes, the primary goal of this training plan is to set you up for your successful IRONMAN 70.3 Waco FINISH.

Crafted by USA Triathlon-certified coach and exercise physiologist David Glover, MSE, MS, CSCS, this plan encapsulates his passion for the sport, his experience from dozens of Half and Full IRONMAN distance finishes and his success coaching hundreds of triathletes.

Starting 18 weeks before your goal race, this plan progresses through three base periods and one build period (13.5 hrs max per week) prior to peaking and tapering. Each week typically contains 3x swims, 3x bikes and 3x runs plus 1 BRICK run. You will build up to: 3,000 yards (or meters) swimming, 3.5 hrs biking and 2 hrs running. Your long ride is Saturday, long run is Sunday and off day is Monday. Although not necessary, we recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with perceived effort; you may use a power meter as well.

Prior to using this plan, you should be able to complete the following workouts:
• Swim: 500 meters or yards continuously
• Bike: 90 minutes
• Run: 60 minutes

Purchase of this plan includes our comprehensive 40+ page Triathlon Training Guide, which explains how to use your training plan plus email access to David Glover at any time for questions that you may have about this plan.
